It’s April, and we’ve been celebrating the diamond all month long. Diamonds are not only the birthstone of April, but also one of the most well known and sought after gemstones. Symbolic of love, excellence and purification,Â diamonds are also considered to have strong and historic magical powers. The AprilÂ diamondÂ is both invincibly strong and brilliantly stunning. These gemstones have,Â and continue to reign supreme in their symbolism of power, strength, brilliance and unparalleled beauty.
Proof of the existence of diamonds dates back to the beginning of the 3rd century, where anÂ Indian description written describes strength, regularity, brilliance, ability to scratch metals, and good refractive properties as the desirable qualities of a diamond. Diamonds have been utilized as the gemstone for traditional engagement rings since at least the 15th century.
Diamonds are formed throughout centuries of erosion within volcanic rock, deeply embedded within the earth and crystallized through intense natural heat. This is just one of reasons for which diamondsÂ are one of the earthsâ€™ most miraculous natural creations, also known for being the symbol ofÂ eternal love. As this gemstone has endured centuries of intense heat, volcanic rock, theÂ Dark Ages, Renaissance,Â even the â€™80s, theÂ gift of a diamondÂ successfully represents the unbreakable bond ofÂ everlasting love.
The crystallized carbon that evolves into diamonds â€¦
April,Â weÂ sure do adore you.

Â Britt’s Pick: Margery Hirschey’s Diamond Ring
“Margery Hirscheyâ€™s earthy-glam diamond ring is handmade and fabulous.”
“Aprilâ€™s birthstone has never looked better with this engagement ring fromÂ MK Diamonds & Jewelry, set with an ultra-desirable pink center stone. The radiant-cut center diamond sits in a complementary 18k rose gold setting dotted with pink diamonds, making it pop from its white gold setting with pear-shape diamond sides. The pretty-in-pink designâ€”which fully satisfies our desire for spring pastelsâ€”will appeal to your chicest shoppers all year long. Magnifique!”
